Gigabyte GeForce Graphics Card GTX560 - 1GB 256bit GDDR5 - PCI-E
Gigabyte - GA-Z68AP-D3 - Socket LGA 1155
Intel Boxed Core i7 2600K Processor - 3.40GHz Quad Core Socket 1155 - CPU

my problem is that my pc runs very slowly, even on a fresh install, there is still a delay opening explorer or opening a media drive, over all just really sluggish response.

M8 did you install all the ( NEW) drivers ? BIOs ? Windows updates ?
not the ones off the mobo CD but the lastest ones for your hardware ?
